This place is pretty cool. I've came here a few times, and it's beautiful. First of all, the park is huge. The river flows through on the north side, and they have a few places to fish inside the park. The park has bbq pits, plenty of tables and seating, and numerous bathroom facilities. There are trails along the outside of the park, and I appears they may be getting a snack bar soon. I'd recommend checking out the sunset over the river from Hart park. Very picturesque.

Peaceful, such a beautiful and serene location. Attended the night hike with a big group of outdoor enthusiasts with a wide range age group. It was about a 5 mile hike, our guide provided a safe and educational tour of the preservation. This location is a great place to take the family / friends out for a day trip, a nice time for bonding or simply out for a hike.

Lots of different scenery for a Easterner such as myself to see. We took pieces of this trail and connected them to the Round the Mountain trail and Panorama Drive sections to coble together a convenient ride. Trail is well kept and the uphills are manageable. Lots of interesting historical relevance of this trail. Well maintained and some good straightaways.
